When Julia Jones was three years old her parents bought Peter Duck, Arthur Ransome’s former yacht. Julia slept in the place that had been designed for Ransome to store his typewriter and it wasn’t long before she was reading her way through the Swallows and Amazons series. Boats and books have been part of her life ever since. Julia Jones on the bridge of the OrwellAs an adult she founded and ran a village bookshop and developed a local publishing list for older readers. She became close friends with Joyce Allingham, sister of Essex detective novelist Margery Allingham, and has written and edited three biographical works connected with the Allingham family with the fourth, Fifty Years in the Fiction Factory, scheduled for publication in 2012. The Salt-Stained Book was her first novel for younger readers and is also enjoyed by adults.

Nourishing Newborn Mothers

Author: Julia Jones Format: eBook Release Date: 13/06/2018

Congratulations! You are embarking on a great journey with a new soul. As a Newborn Mother your heart is wide open, you are sensitive, you are brand new. You are being invited to re-invent yourself because when a baby is born so is a mother. And you are one of the lucky few. You have in your hands a tool that will help you seize this rare opportunity, this golden month, and avoid feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. Food is more than fuel for our bodies - it nourishes us on an emotional and spiritual level. These Ayurvedic recipes are designed to be cooked for you, not by you. These are foods that will heal your mind, body and soul after childbirth.I'm Julia. I'm a postpartum doula and I started working with exhausted and overwhelmed Newborn Mothers when I was only 24 years old, before I was a mother myself. Early on in my career I completed many postpartum trainings, and while they were all excellent in their own ways, none of them really addressed how to support Newborn Mothers through this major life transition, as a rite of passage. I am fascinated with Ayurveda, anthropology, hormones and brain science and this unusual combination has led me to a radically new paradigm for postpartum transformation.If you are pregnant or a Newborn Mother I'll teach you how to build your village, embrace baby brain and get in touch with your confidence and intuition.If you are a professional, I'll teach you how to create an abundant career and step into your life's work supporting Newborn Mothers.

Up and Running Your 8-Week Plan to Go from 0-5k and Beyond and Discover the Life-Changing Power of Running

Up and Running Your 8-Week Plan to Go from 0-5k and Beyond and Discover the Life-Changing Power of Running

Author: Julia Jones, Shauna Reid Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/06/2014

Up and Running offers a tried and tested plan to bring the transformative power of running to everyone, from manically busy mums to stressed and tired office workers. Julia Jones and Shauna Reid have coached thousands of beginner runners across the world and they have discovered that sore knees and weary lungs are not the main obstacles to achieving your goals. Lack of confidence and unrealistic expectations are the real culprits, and these issues are fully addressed by the authors, who realise that running is a mental exercise as much as a physical one. A warm-up week is followed by a realistic, achievable eight-week training programme that you can tailor to your own needs (including incorporating treadmill running into your workouts) to ensure that you make it across the finish line of your first 5k. The programme continues with a going further section designed to help you prepare for the 10k distance. Running is more than putting one foot in front of the other - it's a mindfulness practice and an exercise in courage.
